Now former Defensive Back, Charles Tillman has announced that he is calling it a career after thirteen seasons, all but one of with were with the Chicago Bears.
Tillman was drafted in the second round in 2003 and quickly the Cornerback would be forced to compete against elite wideouts in the NFC North. Tillman would accumulate 38 Interceptions and in 2012 was named a First Team All Pro. He was also a two time Pro Bowl Selection.
While he may not have the credentials to be a future Pro Football Hall of Famer, he will eligible in 2021 for those inclined to vote for him.

Although we don’t have Chuck Howley

Spending all but one of his professional seasons with the Chicago Bears, Olin Kreutz
was chosen to represent Chicago six consecutive seasons in the Pro Bowl. The former Center was a mainstay on Chicago’s Offensive Line for years and was selected to the NFL 2000’s All Decade Team. As a star Center, he might have an interesting case for the Professional Football Hall of Fame.
There were many stars of the Chicago Bears throughout the 1980’s and many were flashy and unforgettable. Jay Hilgenberg
was an unsung hero of that squad and an anchor of the Offensive Line.
